This week’s Week 17 TE Fantasy Football Rankings doesn’t really offer anything new compared to the past weeks. If you have to play in your championship this weekend, you lucked out since the Falcons are the only team that has everything locked up in terms of home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. The bad news is if you are a Tony Gonzalez owner, you might want to start thinking about other options. I am sure the Falcons plan to play their starters as much as possible, but there is no reason to play them all four quarters, even if they say they will “play to win.” As you can see, I have Gonzo ranked, but not as high as he normally would with his role pretty much unknown. If the Falcons are up by a lot early against the Buccaneers, Mike Smith could yank his starters.
Also, make sure to check the rankings again between now and Friday to see if anyone has moved up or down due to latest news and injuries.
